I'm not sure how great of a deal this is. Read the Terms and Conditions. If you already have an AmEx card, you're not eligible. The annual fee is $0 for the first year, but $175 (!!!!!!!!!!) every year after that. There's a fee for converting rewards points to airline miles. And so on and so forth. Definitely a stay-away, in my opinion at least.

Yeah, it's really going to depend on how much you can take advantage of it or not. I'm actually considering signing up myself for the first year and then canceling ;) Although I've been told it's quite a hassle (on purpose, of course).

But then again, if I can find a way to throw my mortgage on it I'd be hitting the top rewards for sure! Banks just don't seem to want payment via credit ;)

Eh maybe but I would caution against getting a credit card for the sole appeal of "Membership Awards", which come with their own encyclopedia of terms and conditions – especially when the other benefits of this card don't appear to be all that special. I think the decision to get a credit card should be made independent of whatever "limited time offers" are available. If you were planning on getting a credit card before you were made aware of this promotion, I'd suggest checking out Bankrate ( for credit card comparisons.

First it’s not a credit card , it’s a charge card that you must pay in full by the due date. Amex charge is a good card to have in a portfolio of revolving credit/charge cards.
The card is a good card due to the purchase protections and other perks which are provided.

look at it like this you get rewards for being forced to pay your balance in full every month.
